MEREDITH — Kidworks Learning Center will hold a comedy night at Church Landing in Meredith on Friday, April 5, to raise money for a new transportation vehicle.
The proceeds of the event will help to pay for vehicle to transport youngsters to and from Kidwworks' programs.
"Our primary use for a vehicle is to provide convenience for families so we can with the bring children to and from the half-day kindergarten program at Inter-Lakes Elementary School," explained Jennifer Weeks, executive director of Kidworks which offers early childhood education and childcare programs at an affordable cost to families. "In addition, and equally important, is to have field trips so we can stretch the children's learning experiences beyond the classroom environment and provide them with new and exciting ways to explore the world around them. Unfortunately, the bus we currently use is not going to last beyond the summer, and we are eagerly looking to fill this void. We are very excited and grateful to have fundraiser for this cause"
The fund-raiser starts with a cash bar at 7 p.m. followed by the comedy show at 8 p.m. featuring Mike Burton and Paul Keenan. Burton has been seen on NBC, Law & Order, Comedy Central and Dr. Oz. Keenan, a Boston comic, will warm up the audience at 8 p.m.
Mill Falls at the Lake and Meredith Village Savings Bank are the corporate sponsors for the event.
